The cottage is in the hills above the southern Tenerife town of Güimar. It is surrounded by vineyards and has magnificent views of the high mountains to one side, and the sea to the other. There are local shops and a well supplied village within easy walking distance. It is best suited to walking holidays in the autumn, winter and spring, but the sea is only seven minutes away by car. Güimar is well connected to the southern airport and to the capital city of Santa Cruz by motorway. It also has one of the main access routes to the Mount Teide national park in the island interior. The house is a traditional cottage newly modernized and decorated. It has all amenities including an internet connection.
I am an astronomer from England who has been living in Tenerife for over 30 years. My wife is from the village of Güimar. She was born in this cottage which belonged to her family, and where her grandparents lived. Her grandfather left her the cottage in his will. After inheriting the house she has modernized it and it is ready for letting.
We have been living in Güimar for over 18 years, where we have brought up our son. We have very warm relations with the district of La Hoya and the kind local people who have known my wife since she was a little girl. The area is spectacular, as Güimar is near the foot of the highest mountain in Spain, Mount Teide, but with great views of the sea and the surrounding country. The local wines, especially the white wine, are a great speciality to be sampled in the numerous local bars and restaurants. The house is quite small, highly suitable for a couple, or a couple with a child, and sleeps up to 4 people.
The communication with the owner was quick and perfect. The description of the property was accurate. All the rooms were clean and very well equipped. The owner took us for a brief tour around the city of Guimar and showed us all near shops, restaurants and atractions. We stayed for 10 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The house is situated in the vineyards and gardens with a view to the sea. We would definitely like to come back and also we would recomend this property to our friends for a holiday.
